Last week, I had the opportunity to experience Part 1 of 2 self-defense workshops conducted by Defense-Ability founder, Rebecca O'Brien.
Learning about the potential dangers around you can be anxiety provoking and Rebecca doesn't shy away from telling you about the horrors that can happen if you are a woman traveling alone. However, she follows up each scenario with a realistic solution so you leave the workshop feeling knowledgeable and empowered. Rebecca has multiple safety tips to share but her style of presentation is so fluid, I personally did not feel overwhelmed with information. She didn't use many props other than a TV and a taser, but her speech was very effective. Her passion for helping people is channeled in her tone and mannerisms and the entire time I felt like I was being mentored one on one even though I was in a room full of other people. In summary, I highly encourage both sexes of all ages to experience this workshop. I feel like the lessons learned are beneficial if not for yourself, but for someone you care about. Part 2 of the workshop will be coming up soon and I hope to update this post then with more information on my experience!
